From the great state of Colorado…

I bought this wine intrigued by seeing a varietal I had not seen from any other Washington producer. Dolcetto is grown in the Piedmont area of Italy. These wines are typically meant to be consumed within a couple years of their release. Not knowing this and seeing it was a 2007, I decided to throw it in the decanter for a bit after first tasting it. Bad idea as the wine quickly fell to pieces. Before this the wine was quite enjoyable, although I have to confess I cannot say how true to the varietal it is or isn’t.

Dolcetto makes its way in to some of Woodward Canyon’s other wines, such as their Nelms Road Cabernet 2006.







Woodward Canyon Dolcetto 2007

A big nose with spice, tar, diesel, black fruit, and floral aromas. This is a fascinating wine which, although young, has a big taste. 88% Dolcetto; 6% Barbera; 6% Syrah. 13.2% alcohol. 403 cases produced.
